Remember the part about how our huge splurge after getting the financing money was to buy a larger, but very basic, fridge?

More than a week before it was scheduled to be delivered, I received several phone messages about someone wanting to deliver a fridge to us the following day. Needless to say, I was a bit baffled, since the vendor and delivery date were completely different than the fridge I had ordered.

Eventually I figured out that a very nice investor at MDV had actually bought a fridge for us as a surprise, to celebrate the close of the funding round, and, therefore, we could cancel our original order. More money for ramen!

What follows is documentation of the inside of the fridge, a group shot of the happy employees gathered ’round the fridge, and a happy employee (me) bear hugging the fridge.

…no Salmonella here!

Harkening back to David’s post about being glad we ship bits rather than physical stuff, boy, it’s also nice to know that we don’t ship anything that could harm people, either.

On a lighter note, I just bought a household-sized fridge for our office. The one we have now is a very small dorm-room style one. In fact, it was actually my fridge for the two years when I was in a college dorm. With the recent addition of employee #6, it’s bursting at the seams, though, so we’ve decided we need a bigger space for all that Red Bull, leftover Chinese food, and Little Lucca’s sandwiches.

I’ve decided this must mean we’ve arrived as a corporate entity. We need a real fridge. The entire company can’t legally fit in one regular passenger car anymore. Woot.
